Gigabyte, the tech company behind a bunch of top tier PC parts, has just expanded its line of motherboards with a bunch of new AMD focused Aorus B550 models.
If you are looking to jump on board the PCIe 4.0 bandwagon and get the absolute maximum performance out of your existing kit then you might be shopping for a brand new motherboard right about now. Now, the range of available AM4 compatible B550 on offer to consumers has expanded thanks to Gigabyte. The same brand that built some of the best AMD applicable boards of the last few years has just unleashed their new line of B550 Aorus motherboards.
“We are seeing increasing user demands for flexible systems that perform well in a multitude of tasks, from gaming to content creation, more than ever before,” said Chris Kilburn, corporate vice president and general manager, client component business unit, AMD. “AMD is excited to bring the power of 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ desktop processors and cutting edge PCIe® 4.0 support to the mainstream users with our latest AMD B550 chipsets. With overwhelming platform support from our partners at Gigabyte, AMD is confident these new B550 platforms will provide flexibility and power never seen before on a mainstream platform.”
This new range of AMD compatible boards provides PC enthusiasts with up to Direct 16 phases of digital power, cutting edge thermal designs, and the aforementioned PCIe 4.0 support. As this is more than just a single board spec, users can choose 10+3 phases, 12+2 phases DrMOS all-digital PWM design, or grab the B550 AORUS MASTER, to experience a maximum of 1120 Amps solid power supply from Direct 16 phases digital power design. That’s not even mentioning the Mini-ATX designs, 2.5GBps Ethernet or Intel WiFi6 802.11ax wireless that the range can offer for the discerning speed machine.
The addition of PCIe 4.0 M.2 designs means enthusiasts can get ludicrously fast read/write processes and data transfer speeds, with Gigabyte even testing SSD RAID 0 arrays up to a 12700MB/s write speed, all while supporting 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ desktop processors.
